February 11, 2017 was the 11th annual #MoralMarch on Raleigh, an annual event that has its roots in the annual “Historic Thousands on Jones Street” (HKonJ) People’s Assembly. Both events are peaceful protests organized by the Rev. William Barber II, President of the North Carolina NAACP, and enjoy broad statewide support from progressive organizations from across the state, as well as numerous houses of worship and religious organizations. The organizing theme of this annual event is:
Forward together – not one step back!
I became fascinated by the wide range of people and messages at the event because the signs tell the story, so I roamed around and took pictures. It was thousands of people expressing their anger and frustration at our General Legislature here in Raleigh and our President and Congress – all controlled by the Republican party.
I hope you agree the signs really tell the story.
And last but certainly not least, anyone with a cat will tell you that when his ears are down, the pussy is ANGRY.
Thank you for scanning this far among the pictures of this extraordinary event that showed the wide spectrum of people we have here in North Carolina. For more details about upcoming events, please visit the NAACP Forward Together Moral Movement.
